Abstract : The developement of an interactive Petri Net Editor, used for computer aided construction and analysis of arbitrary organizational architectures is presented. The Petri Net Editor consists of four major modules. The Graphics Module, which utilizes a set of graphical abstractions, is used to generate of modify structures, create or delete supernodes, form a large structure from smaller ones and select a flow path from a set of possible flow paths. The graphical representation generates a data structure which serves as the input to a number of algorithms for computing structural properties of an organizational architecture. The Text Module generates a data base to store and retrieve attributes represented by graphical abstractions. The Hardcopy Module produces output on a printer and a plotter. A User's Document is appended. Keywords:Thesis; Editing; Computer files.
